Open house set for new diabetes program


PERRYSBURG – Perrysburg Commons and Promedica are now offering a Diabetes Specialty Program and Resource
Center, located at the retirement center. The program has been designed to help seniors living at the
center, as well as seniors in the community, to learn techniques for successfully managing their disease
and maintain a healthy, happy life.
As adults with diabetes have higher rates of heart disease and stroke, and may experience problems with
vision, circulation and general health, the center plans to assist to ease the fears of the disease,
along with assisting those to learn about how to manage and live with diabetes.
This specialized program will consist monthly of blood pressure clinics, medication reviews by a
pharmacist, monthly diabetes educational presentations, exercise programs, nurse monitoring of
accuchecks/insulin injections, specialized foot care by a visiting podiatrist, and a Diabetes Resource
The community is invited to an open house on Tuesday from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m., including a ribbon cutting
at 9 a.m.
